Situated on the south side of a prestigious Belgravia Street, lies a beautifully proportioned family townhouse with a private walled garden overlooking St Peter’s Church. Located in the heart of the Belgravia Conservation Area, Wilton Street possesses a colourful history, with past residents including famous dignitaries, politicians and artists. It is also reportedly the place where the Royal Family stayed after being evacuated from Buckingham Palace during World War II. This imposing five bedroom townhouse is on the market with leading independent agents Russell Simpson for £6,000,000.
Arranged over 3,632 square feet, this handsome Georgian property is entered on the ground floor through a bright and welcoming entrance hall. The ground floor comprises a formal dining room, eat-in kitchen, guest cloakroom and study, and the kitchen provides direct access onto a charming south-facing garden. Most rare for Belgravia, the garden extends over 40 feet and includes an elegant paved area for al fresco dining and a favourable aspect for brilliant evening sun.
The first floor houses a formal drawing room, with classic floor-to-ceiling windows and impressive ceiling heights of 3.2 metres, producing proportions of great volume. Flooded with natural light, this dedicated space provides the perfect setting for entertaining, whilst a separate conservatory/reading room provides a calm space for reflection, with views of the appealing St Peter’s Church.
The upper section of the house is occupied by the bedrooms, with the second and third floors reserved entirely for the master and guest suites. The fourth floor also boasts two additional bedrooms and a family bathroom. Downstairs, the lower ground floor comprises a utility room, a well-proportioned TV/family room, which could be used as an additional bedroom, storage vaults and staff living quarters.
This exceptionally quiet property also features air conditioning throughout and an integrated home control system.
Jake Russell, Director at Russell Simpson, commented: “This property boasts a highly sought-after south facing garden, something of a rarity in the area. Due to its situation between Victoria and Hyde Park, it would suit someone working in the West End or Green Park that wants to be able to walk to the office. This house also offers very good value compared to an equivalent one in Chelsea, so would also suit a family in need of more space, allowing them to get significantly more for their money”.
Wilton Street is situated just to the east of Belgrave Square and close to Buckingham Palace Gardens and Green Park. Mayfair is within easy walking distance, as are the array of amenities to be found in Belgravia, including Michelin starred restaurants, boutiques and art galleries.
